Jabra

Do you like the concept of Apple's BeatsX earbuds, but want something that's better at shutting out external noise and taking phone calls? Jabra might have your fix. It's expanding its Elite earbud line with the 65e, which brings active noise cancellation and higher-quality voice calls (through a three-mic array). It's even promising that this won't hurt your battery life. You should get 8 hours of listening with noise cancellation on, and 13 hours relying just on the passive cancellation of the in-ear design.

The Elite 65e be rain- and gym-ready thanks to IP54 dust and water resistance, and they're relatively futureproof through Bluetooth 5.0. Jabra expects the earbuds to ship in April for $199 -- $50 more than their most conspicuous rival, but potentially worthwhile if you're tired of asking people to repeat themselves.
